Air Force Orders 102nd Intelligence Wing to Stand Down for Security Investigation Following Arrest of Airman for Allegedly Posting Secret Pentagon Documents to Social Media

The Air Force has ordered the 102nd Intelligence Wing to stand down from its intelligence mission as the service's inspector general conducts an investigation into the alleged posting of secret Pentagon documents to social media by an airman. A memo from Air Force Secretary Frank Kendall and other military leaders has directed each unit to conduct a security-focused stand down in the next 30 days. A federal judge has delayed a pretrial detention hearing for the airman, and it is unclear when the investigation will be completed or when the 102nd Intelligence Wing will resume its mission.
